So in this email I was told that initial orders are very low...not to expect much from reorders and he would estimate that our individual royalties might be...$25.00.
He has given each creator the option of foregoing the royalty check for 2 additional copies of the book...meaning I would have 7 comp copies...each of them valued at little over $24.00 a piece which means it's a better financial deal...I mean, I could sell them to people for a lot less than they would pay at their local comics shop and I'd make more $.
HOWEVER...there is just something so COOL about the idea of receiving a royalty check...even if it is silly and meager.
So, dear reader...what do you think I should do? Forego the royalty and get 2 additional books...or go for the royalty check even if in all likelyhood it will be a pittance?
Should I forego the royalty check and get 2 additional free copies of this year's 24 Hour Comic anthology?
